Examples of trappings in a Sentence

  1. William Barr:

    One of the ironies, as some have observed, is that the secular project has itself become a religion, pursued with religious fervor. It is taking on all the trappings of a religion – including inquisitions and excommunication. Those who defy the creed risk a figurative burning at the stake – social, educational, and professional ostracism and exclusion waged through lawsuits and savage social media campaigns.

  2. Andrea Leone:

    We need to make international films like Garrone's and Sorrentino's. They have all the trappings of international cinema, we need to start to export our films, just like they did in the golden years of our cinema.

  3. Ali Allawi:

    There is so much up in the air, there are the trappings of a functioning state, but it is like a functioning state lying on a sea of Jello...The ground is so unstable and shifting.

  4. Sir George Savile:

    In your clothes avoid too much gaudiness do not value yourself upon an embroidered gown and remember that a reasonable word, or an obliging look, will gain you more respect than all your fine trappings.

  5. Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.:

    For I say unto you in all sadness of conviction that to think great thoughts you must be heroes as well as idealists. Only when you have worked alone -- when you have felt around you are a black gulf of solitude more isolating than that which surrounds the dying man, and in hope and despair have trusted to your own unshaken will -- then only can you gain the secret isolated joy of the thinker, who knows that a hundred years after he is dead and forgotten men who have never heard of him will be moving to the measure of his thought -- the subtle rapture of postponed power, which the world knows not because it has no external trappings, but which to his prophetic vision is more real than that which commands an army. And if this joy should not be yours, still it is only thus you can know that you have done what lay in you to do -- can say that you have lived, and be ready for the end.
